COM 102: Interpersonal Communication
Department of Communication Studies
University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Course Description: This course is an introduction to the principles and concepts of interpersonal communication. Topics include: the interpersonal process,
the self-concept, identity management, perception, emotions, language, nonverbal communication, listening, dynamics of interpersonal relationships, communication climates, conflict, and the influences of gender and culture on all of
these topics. Classroom exercises, readings, lectures, and assignments will give
you a better understanding of your own communication style and that of others.
At course end, students should be able to understand and apply concepts from
this class to their personal and professional relationships, using them to improve
the quality of their own relationships. Because we communicate all the time, we
tend to take interpersonal skills for granted. This course will help you recognize
those skills and explore how to apply them in your daily and professional life. In
addition to your academic education, consider this class a part of your “life skills”
education at UNLV.

principles addressed in class.

theory as they relate to the study of interpersonal communication.
